DailyMail.com spotted Natalie checking out a local real estate magazine while grabbing lunch with her family at the Pierre LaFond & Co marketplace in Montecito, California, on Saturday.

The ritzy seaside enclave sits two hours north of Los Angeles and has recently become THE place to live for stars like Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston, Adam Levine, and of course, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

As she studied the pages of the latest issue of Montecito Journal Real Estates 2022, Natalie could be seen pointing out different homes and showing them to her husband, Joe Rhodes. 

She was overheard saying, ‘Wow, [the homes] are so expensive, look at this one!’

Natalie, her investment banker husband of almost 25 years, and their sons Josh, 18, and Luke, 13, currently live in a six bedroom, five bath, $6.8 million mansion in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles.

They also own a $3.5 million rustic style vacation condo in Vail, Colorado.

The family previously lived in New York City, before making the move to the West Coast in 2016.

‘It was more of a bucket list thing for my husband and me,’ the longtime New Yorker said in an interview. ‘My kids were going into seventh and second grade. It seemed like it was time for a change.’

But the sky-high prices in Montecito may be too much of a change.

They are bound to make anyone flinch, even someone like Natalie, 50, who is reportedly worth around $18million.

She appeared to be at least considering a move, as DailyMail.com caught her reading a community bulletin board where local real estate agents, handymen, massage therapists, and dog walkers post their ads.

After eating lunch, she walked away with a copy of the real estate publication tucked under her arm.

After decades on NBC’s Today Show sharing a couch with Matt Lauer, appearing in the true crime hit Dateline, and co-hosting Access Hollywood, Natalie made headlines last October when she replaced Sharon Osbourne, 69, on the CBS daytime chat fest The Talk.

Natalie, a marathon runner and triathlete, looked incredibly fit as she shopped for clothes and gifts at the store.

She wouldn’t be the first talk show host to move to Montecito.

Both Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres have accumulated massive real estate portfolios in the area.

The market is hotter than ever with wealthy buyers plunking down cold hard cash on both land and finished estates.

A tear down home can go for millions and inspire bidding wars.

Economic experts have dubbed Montecito ‘recession proof’ because of the constant demand by buyers with deep pockets.
